We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

His holy day

Representative Text

1 Once again the Sabbath Day is here,
Earth and heav’n again are drawing near,
Mortals now with angel singers raise
To God a hymn of praise.

Gladly addressing Him,
As a Father true and kind,
Thanking and blessing Him,
For the daily gifts we find,
Worship and bring to Him,
As His summons we obey,
Praises we sing to Him,
On His own most holy day.

2 Long ago, this day was set apart,
Chosen by the wise Creator’s art,
By His will, from labor now we cease,
And meet with Him in peace. [Refrain]

3 So we sing to God our Maker blest,
Praise Him on His chosen day of rest,
Strength and hope and wisdom here we seek,
To guide us through the week. [Refrain]
